Editor, the Gauntlet,

The first thing that I would like to say is I regularly read the Gauntlet and enjoy it. However, despite the professions of acceptance of others ideas and opinions and their right to have and profess them, the paper seems to have an ultra-leftist spin on it with little other right or even moderate views to balance it out.

You might call this a test, a time to put your money where your mouth is.

  Stink Mitt? FascinatingPDF files may take a moment to load

"I'm wearing black panties with your name on them. I've been wearing them for three days. I could barely wait to call you, but I couldn't afford a phone card until now."

These were the words of Jenni Craige, one third of Vancouver-based Stink Mitt, in the preface to our interview last week. The 42-year-old mother of six is in the midst of what she calls "super stardom," brought on by the group's first release, Scratch 'n' Sniff.

"Take off your golf shirt and we'll start the interview."

"I apologize for the condition of my voice," Hunter says, following my formal introduction. "We have been playing a lot of shows in the south. Right now we are in Austin and the air is doing a number on us."

Touring is definitely nothing new for AFI (A Fire Inside). They have developed a staggering fan base since their debut in 1992, touring on grueling schedules all over the world.

  Buffalo Soldiers up to no good in East BerlinPDF files may take a moment to load

Kept on a shelf at Miramax for two years to avoid cries of anti-Americanism in the wake of September 11, Buffalo Soldiers is finally seeing release outside its first showing at the Toronto International Film Festival. Set against the backdrop of the crumbling Berlin Wall, the film depicts soldiers behaving very badly and is evidently not for those without a sense of humour, or for those who value their time spent in a theatre.

  Listen to Italians yellingPDF files may take a moment to load

Ah, Italy, providing us with some of the world's finest art for hundreds of years. Where romance reigns and an entire romantic language developed, devoted to yelling at each other.

Emanuele Crialese's Respiro is a very Italian film. It's also a very good Italian film, capturing the Critics Week Prize at this year's Cannes International Film Festival.

  Footballers get rammedPDF files may take a moment to load

The woeful Regina Rams were at McMahon Sat., Oct. 4 to take on the Dinos football squad. The Dinos were looking to overcome an embarrassing loss to the best-in-the-West University of Saskatchewan Huskies last week. Lady Luck was not on the Dinos side however, as they dropped a 21-point lead and lost their first home game of the season 37-35.

The game was all Dinos for the first half and a good portion of the third quarter. The offense posted big numbers both on the ground and in the air.
